This 100% varietal wine comes from two stellar sites: Broken Rock on Atlas Peak and Las Piedras, an appropriately gravelly site farmed by Andy Beckstoffer. Together, they yield magic—a thick, juicy and well-integrated layering of red cherry, clove and cigar that exudes a strong barrel presence and structured tannin profile.

The initial push of vivid raspberry and currant picks up herb and earth notes, gaining a measure of elegance and grace before ending with firm tannins. Best from 2019 through 2030.

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa is a beauty, with loads of chocolate, crème de cassis and licorice. This full-bodied, opulent, fleshy wine has a dense purple color, big, juicy fruit, impressive purity, and a long, rich finish. This wine is drinkable now and should continue to evolve for another 12-15+ years.

A big, rich style with lots of grape skin and ripe-berry character. Full body, soft tannins and a savory finish. Soft and round texture. Drink or hold.
